Most pizza dough recipes are for quantity greater than one pizza. This recipe uses a ratio of ingredients to produce a pizza dough from small (9") to large (cookie sheet).
This recipe is for a small crust, for a larger crust use the ratio to scale up.
For example 1/2 cup makes a small crust, 3/4 cup is bigger, 1 cup will be cookie sheet thick crust. The ratio is the cup size scaled against the spoon size by ingredient.
example 1 cup would be the water measure but the flour would be 2 times that.
1 cup would mean 1 tablespoon or 1 teaspoon of ingredient. —njackimec
